Thank you ! But how can we asume that it's not northern hemisphere for example ? What say the grid ?

The triangle is the derelict and the little dots are Dallas, Kane and Lambert.
The grid squares get smaller the closer you get to a pole and larger near the equator.
They're walking north east from the Nostromo.
They're walking from smaller squares towards larger ones.
Ipso facto.

Ah yes, well seen !

Quite a lot of info shown in such a short time on screen. It's an art.

I came across this in Aliens Fireteam Elite. It reminded me of the age old argument over the size of LV-426. I was pretty amused lol. :laugh:

Interesting lampshade.  It's like they've read our threads.

Related to the amazing rate of growth of the creature is possibly the sheer amount of fluids that the thing loses.

Sometimes it's like a Beethoven sequel set in space!

But yisucrist  :o that thing looked like a Star Wars blaster.

That's because Star Wars used the same gun to make a similar looking blaster.

Thanks for the extra info.  8)

EDIT~

They should release a Scott's cut where Kane shoots first. Big Chap is not born at all, but they return to Earth and the bonus situation gets out of control. ^🐽^



But then there would be a Miller situation where the other eggs would open, hope the gun doesn't overheat as much as the fireteam's counterpart does.  ;D

Speaking of the egg chamber, there is little proof for 100% certain but I think some of the eggs are dead, either due to stasis malfunction, age or cannibalism (drawing nutrients from each other)
its interesting to notice that not all the eggs around Kane open , he even outright falls on one. In Isolation, not all the eggs opened when there was three people wandering around them in close proximity. So I some of them might be dead, which is kind of cool as it grounds things down a bit.

Have you enjoyed Fireteam?

Edit - The dead egg theory is quite plausible.

Fireteam is brilliant, I was expecting another ACM but the game works for what it is. It just needs more content, which it will get if the road map is any indication.

It wasn't explicit in the final film, but was in the script.
I’m just curious, where was it in the script? I know the intent was always there, it was the explanation for why they couldn’t just shoot the (presumably adult) Alien.

Did they have firearms?  :o
Kane has a laser pistol, he unholsters it when he investigates the Alien egg before he gets nailed in the director's cut.

The weapons, and I believe it's in the "Director's Cut" Special Edition.
